2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Rich Milligan on 19 Oct 2005
Format: Paperback
Of the first 7 books written in the Alphabet series of mysteries I would say without a shadow of a doubt that "G is for Gumshoe" is the best one written so far. This is for a number of reasons, the plot this time is divided into two sections that are given equal weight, so you have the main investigation and then you also have the happenings in Kinsey's personal life, which as I say this time do not play second fiddle to the main plot. What the book also benefits from are the re-appearances of several characters from earlier novels that are great fun to meet again.
The Dietz and Millhone combination makes for great fireworks especially as Dietz is basically a male version of Kinsey.
It's also great to meet some old faces again, apart from Henry we also catch up with Vera the man-eating claims manager from California Fidelity as well as Darcy who also works there.

Sue writes a very exciting mystery story and so far I have read all up to 'P' and every one maintained the same level of suspense and interest. What's more, unlike some mystery writers, all Sue Grafton's tales appear possible in the real world.

I recommend Sue's books to all lovers of mystery stories.

Format: Paperback
The investigative procedure plays second fiddle here to more insight into the private life of the emotionally shut down Ms Millhone. It's always a treat to get insight into some new aspect of her complex character. Having said that, this is a first rate investigation too, so bonus time all round.

Sue Grafton has hit on a great formula and I don't use that term in a derogatory way. She sets up the story in detail and with humour and humanity. Our heroine, Kinsey, is someone who grows on you book by book and does silly things as well as clever ones, showing endearing traits as well as frustrating ones. The writing is good with varied pace and doesn't involve tracts of technical detail. So if you don't know the books, this will be a treat for you and you needn't start at A and work through them, though having read one, I tried to do this. Each stands alone and gives you an interesting detective story with thriller elements and with a realistic and sympathetic heroine, and one with whom both women and men can identify with little trouble.

I like these books they have a good plot and if you read them in order (A-Z) this gives you continuity as to the Detectives history, although each book has a different story line so you can read them as stand alone books. Light reading but enjoyable.

As with all the Sue Grafton alphabet books they are individual stories but reading A - W Kinsey Millhone, the female Private Detective grows and not only do you read about the case in question but it follows her love life or lack of at times and are really enjoyable reads. This is my third time going through the series as I first had them in books and are now transferring to my kindle and I know in future I shall read them again.

The Kinsey Millhone mysteries are always well written. The plot is good and the narration is excellent. Sue Grafton has a natural way of writing that just carries the story along.
